First had on draft into a Brugse Zot heavy weizenbier pint glass. I have possibly overrated it, as seriously tired at the time. But nicely-balanced beer, capable of standing up to moules spinazie, which is reminiscent of oysters rockefeller.

Bottle: Poured a clear light brown color ale with a medium size foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of candi sugar and light caramel notes is tamer than I was expecting. Taste is also a standard mix of candi sugar and light caramel malt notes. Body is lighter than expected with some good carbonation. Sub-standard example of the style.

An average dubbel. Hazy, dark brown, with very thick foamy head. Light aroma of brown sugar, brown bread, and coriander. Taste is spicy , but overall mouthfeel is light, Spiciness leads to stinging on the palate. Meh.

Pours dark brown with scheitanic golden head of unbelievable density and beauty. Retention rocks. Smell - nut-almond cookies, caramel, dark fruits. Taste - yeasty, caramel and... And all. Drinkable, but finally cloying.
Pros - outstanding smell and appearance.
Contras - disappointing taste and mouthfeel, yeastiness, lack of complexity.

A deep red beer with a thin tan head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of over ripe fruits as well as a light touch of cinnamon. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of over ripe fruits, leading to a dry bitter finish
